16. Just end the 4 wars and then no cuts are needed
Edited on Sun Jul-24-11 07:37 PM by golfguru
I can't think of anything more stupid than fighting wars in middle-east with borrowed money from China to protect oil supplies to China which has taken away millions of manufacturing jobs from USA. May be Donald Trump is right, we are getting screwed by many foreign countries including China & OPEC & many others.
